Jury selection begins Monday for a Columbus County man accused of killing his own girlfriend on Christmas Eve.

Beamon Fowler is charged with the murder of Rebecca Ann Buffkin on December 24, 2012.

Fowler told authorities he shot Buffkin following a domestic dispute at this home in Tabor City.

Deputies found her dead on the kitchen floor.

For the past year and a half he's been held in jail under no bond.

That court case begins tomorrow in Whiteville.
